Speedster, I'm with you on what you said about the competition! Lets say the heavy 8 oz outlaw car only had to run for a few heats .. would you then load the wheel bores up with graphite. Now lets say .. you for see it has a lot of competition and a lot of heat races to run.. would you then drop wei...

Are 2009 wheel bores on an angle

Building a car using science Workshop

I know what your saying Speedster! Even with a pre cut kit if the physics are not there the car will not preform at its best. Same holds true for the block kits! So thanks for what you do in workshops teaching physics. From the sound of things on the snow outlook.. Your talking about! Might need to ...

Building a car using science Workshop

Keep your chin up Speedster! And if you get that 14" of snow better brake out the snowmobile for the drive! If the child likes the looks of a precut car ! And can draw it out on the block then cut it out to look like it was a precut out car design in the workshop things would change. Sent from my iP...

Have you ever seen a pinewood derby that was open to all the pinewood derby kit types and clubs.( Instead o...

Re: 2017 car 1974 AMC Javelin

As I remember the setup for holding the car, while chiseling, was an idea I stole from Whoda. What.. now way Andy! However if i had to carve out 3 cars using a chisel and an Xacto knife.. my free hand used to hold the work piece would be very tired by now! (plus put at risk of a slip cut or gash fr...

Re: cab-over semi

devet, I do like the looks of your fuel tanks dents wrinkles and all on your cab over race rig! However If your still looking to do something different to cover them up maybe you could change up the looks to like what is seen in this link. https://misracing.com/site-assets/2017/07/Anderson-Motor-Spe...

Re: cab-over semi

Where is Andy & Noah when you need them! Those two guys were the best I have ever seen with chrome tape. And making it look good and smooth! I'm with you it is very tuff to do over a rounded ends. Your idea of square end fuel tanks With the tape is the way to go I'd say as well. But then again have ...

moral/ethics dilemma

Take your self out of the running and run it just for fun and the sake of the work you put into it to see what it will do!
Trust me when I say it might surprise you and a lot of others as well.
